Verizon to launch Motorola Droid Turbo at an event on October 28th

Verizon_DROID_Turbo_Event_2014

Just a few days ago, Verizon “accidentally” tweeted an image of the upcoming Motorola Droid Turbo, and then quickly pulled that image. It wasn’t the first time the Turbo had leaked, with a user manual making the rounds earlier in the week. Today we have the final piece of the puzzle as Verizon has put a countdown clock on their site, redirected from DroidDoes.com. The countdown shows a phone identical to what we’ve already seen and ends on October 28th, the same day as an upcoming Verizon event (the flyer for which features the same image as the countdown clock), so it is safe to assume that the Turbo will launch that day.

Google_Animated_Ad_Nexus_6_Reveal

If you happened to watch last night’s Walking Dead episode online, you might have noticed a few new ads from Google. Yup, they quietly released these because they like having fun with us.

There are three 30 second ads in all with the first one revealing the Nexus 6 with Android L navigation buttons and a new ringtone, while the second one shows the Nexus 9. You will also notice the “Be Together, Not The Same” theme here implying that the Nexus 6 is very big and might not be for everyone. The third ad continues this theme, but doesn’t reveal any of the devices.

Gameboy emulator comes to Android Wear because a watch needs those sort of things

AndroidWearGameboyI know that after I got my Moto 360 I was thinking to myself, man I would love to play Pokemon Red, or Mario on that thing. Given its small size, it would do wonders to bring back the glory days of me squinting at a tiny screen in an effort to beat whichever game I was playing. Well it looks like I, and anyone else with an Android Wear watch, will be able to do just that.
